This is an antique Regency, 18 karat gold quizzing glass. During this period, the use of a hand held lens became a fashion accessory, not limited to poor vision. Eyeglasses were deemed unfashionable, and the well dressed woman would wear this 'socially acceptable' item on a long ribbon or chain. The term "quizzing" was used as the wearer would look quizzically with a stare or glance.

The vast majority of these were cast and made in heavy plated gold...

Lovely agates of mauve and Montrose gray were cut,shaped, polished and inlaid in hand engraved surrounds. Swirling gold commands the eye as it twists and turns gracefully like a ribbon, to ...
